Frühroter Veltliner

The white grape variety most likely originates from Austria (see Veltliner). There are well over 100 synonyms indicating the vine's great age. Some of them grouped alphabetically by country are Babotraube, Rote Babotraube, Frühroter Malvasier, Früher Roter Malvasier, Italienischer Früher Malvasier (Germany); Malvoisie d'Italie, Malvoisie Rose du Po, Rojal, Velteliner Rouge Précoce (France); Malvasia Rossa, Malvasia Rossa d'Italia, Uva Rosa (Italy); Frühe Trübrothe, Kalebstraube, Malvasier, Roter Malvasier (Austria); Veltlínske Červené Skoré(Slovakia); Veltlínské Červené Rané(Czech Republic); Korai Piros Veltelini (Hungary). The synonym Malvasia has no variety-specific meaning. According to DNA analyses last carried out in 2013, it originated from a presumably natural cross Silvaner x Roter Veltliner (like Neuburger). The variety was a crossing partner of the new varieties Floriánka, Jubiläumsrebe and Rakisch.
